SANDBANKS-based Liz Lean PR has appointed two new team members.

Ellie Cowley joins as an account manager with over six years’ experience in ground level and strategic PR at Merlin Entertainments.

During her time there, she worked with more than 39 Sea Life centres and six Dungeons attractions across the globe.

Beth Kendall, who joins as account executive, completed a round-the-world trip after university before working for five years as a press officer for award-winning travel PR agency Citrus PR.

Her previous clients have included the UK’s largest independent tour operator, DialAFlight; luxury villa specialists in Mallorca and Ibiza; two resorts in the Maldives; and a collection of hotels in New York.

Her new role sees her working with Connaught Windows, who recently joined the consultancy’s client base to highlight its achievements ahead of its 20th anniversary.
